    So I took the "room" theme and kinda ran with it. Still a work in progress. Fun with photoshop :)

    Theses are absolutely fantastic....
    But have no clue on half of what you all are talking about.
    I have my first smartphone and am such a newbie it's pathetic.
    Could someone pass along a page, thread or link on the basics to do all
    this customization.
    I wouldn't even know what to google to find something.

    Sorry if this is a redundant question...apologize in advance.

    The custom font really makes this theme outstanding.

    I'd love to be able to reproduce it. Does it require root access? You mentioned that it takes a bit of trial and error to find a font that "fits" right, did you find any others that worked as well as this one?

    I believe you have to root and run CM6 (cyanogenmod6) for EVO. Same thing with font, you flash it with a recovery image once rooted.

    Just place the icons on the root of your sd card. I prefer to put them in a folder labeled "icons". You can use bettercut or anycut (free) from market to make icons or launcher pro to make custom dock icons. You won't need root for this

    The power widget comes with the theme (minimal matte for CM6) but there are alternatives on the market with transparency settings like switchpro.

    Pretty much, you can alter most of it without root save for changing the notification bar and some minor custom settings.

    Glad to assist and let me know if there's anything else you need help with.

    I'm digging this transparent look as well, did you customize audio manager yourself?

    sorry to bother you again. But there is no root on my sd card? And i have anycut.. but it doesnt give me an option to change the icon.

    When I said root of your sd card I just meant transferring it to your sd card (not in any folder) so you know where to locate it, but it doesn't really matter. You can put em anywhere.

    I use bettercut so I'm not that familiar with anycut.

    To make custom icons using bettercut

    long press home screen > shortcuts > better cut > activity > choose your activity (app) > change icon > pick picture (from sd card) > create icon

    voila

    THANK YOU. I finally figured most of it out. The app you told me didnt work for all the icons i wanted but shortercut did, with an exeption to messages. Luckely i use handcent sms.


    I do have 2 last questions. What widget are you using for having your batterylife written out like that. #2 I see you have no words under your icons. I know how to make it wordless, but it still has a bit of a black area were it would normally highlight the words.

    Also, when i change the icon on messages, or mail... IT reverts to the old icon after i get a message or mail.
    Again, i apologize for being so annoying :/. I apreciate the help.

    Pretty sure you mean the little geen Droids (Andy)..

    You need to use Launcher Pro I believe , also download the icons and change stock icons with "Better Cut," or a similar program.

    There's detailed instructions at this post as well as links to download the droids (instructions are for Droid X but should work with any android phone I believe):

    good luck & happy customizing!
